We are introducing our new guidebook to the wonderful archaeological site of Ephesus, "Highlights of Ephesus". This book offers a guided tour of the most important sights in Ephesus, the absolutely must-see ones. It was created with the thought of the visitors who have limited time on their hands and want to be sure that they will not miss any highlights of the famous ancient city. There are 18 chapters devoted to particular locations within Ephesus, and they are organised geographically.

Thus, we start the tour at the region near the Lower Gate, in the northern part of the site, and finish at the Upper Gate near the State Agora. Each chapter provides a detailed description of the location and its history, as well as its exact location with a GPS coordinates and a QR code to scan that will lead you to the exact spot. Also, every chapter has a photograph of the described location. Finally, the general plan shows the whole site of Ephesus with the relevant locations clearly marked, while the detailed plan magnifies the area of the Curetes Street where the majority of the described objects are situated.

The Secrets of Ephesus

Located in the Aegean region of Turkey, Ephesus is probably one of the best-preserved ancient cities in the Mediterranean. In ancient times, both in the Greek and in the Roman periods, it was a bustling trading city and a centre of worship of Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt and the wilderness, but also childbirth and chastity. Later, it became a thriving Christian city with the first of the churches dedicated to Mary, the mother of Christ.

In order to imagine what life was like in the ancient city of the Roman Empire, walk the streets of Ephesus, visit public toilets and residential houses, and then sit back in the great theatre or have a look at the splendid library. Ephesus offers all these things, and many more, to curious travellers who want to be sure that they can make the most of their visit there.

"Highlights of Ephesus" is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle versions as well as an e-book from Google Books.
